There are no install scripts within the custom player stats, that could drop existing data from the database. Installing/downgrading to an older PHP would not kill the stats. However, it is never a bad thing to make backups.

PHP 5 is dying, even if we can still find servers providing it, PHP 7 will replace it.
Reading l4dstats web source code, it seems like attempts had been made to switch between mysql/mysqli , but never used. Huge parts of code still hardcode ext/mysql usage, thus turning any code change into a nightmare. At least, lots of motivation is needed to patch it.
Thanks for the info. I will update my PHP to the latest and then fix the errors... once I get the time to do that.
